Nice setting and good food-steaks, salmon, pasta, artisan pizzas. This is not a “pizza place” but more of an upscale (without being formal) Italian/Mediterranean restaurant. Warm, inviting interior. A bit loud. Good service. Great banquet room. Local regulars & visitors.

Ordered 2 Chop Salads. Very fresh greens, but chicken tasted like canned chicken. Caesar dressing appeared to be simply mayonnaise. Very disappointed. Rattling of noisy dishes all through lunch, although went after 1 pm. Very nice waiter.

Mercato's has been pretty reliable, for us. Not this time. I ordered the steak, I found it to be *chewy* and had pieces of either hard fat of gristle in it. It was burnt! So was the mushroom/brussel sprouts! The mashed potatoes were thick and...More
